Most people gauge whether the end of monsoon has arrived by the bite in the air or the amount of leaves on the pavement, but I always know it’s here when a raft of brand new fragrances land on my desk for review.
This is the busiest time of year in terms of new, noteworthy concoctions, so now’s the perfect time to update your fragrance wardrobe, and maybe even score a few gifts well ahead of time while you’re at it. The festive season is almost here.
Here’s a taste of what’s on offer this coming season by an upcoming, promising Indian brand, ‘All Good Scents’.

Rockstar: As the name suggests, this clean, crisp and sparkling fragrance is based around Calabrian bergamot – often considered to be the finest of all citrus notes used in perfumery – but it has a slightly salty, aquatic edge too.
Interesting without being overpowering, it’s perfect both for staying fresh at the office and sun-soaked holidays

There are hundreds of great men’s fragrances out there, but truly classic ones are an altogether rarer breed. Among all the amazing eaus there are probably fewer than fifty that have survived fads and fashions to achieve iconic status and meet men’s, rather exacting, demands.
Men often judge fragrances in the way they do cars, they want sophistication but demand reliability and performance too. And while fancy flacons and big budget marketing campaigns may make an impact on us, ultimately, a scent survives because men – and women – keep coming back for another sniff.
So whether you’re a fragrance newbie looking for your first signature scent, a perfume junkie wanting to complete your collection or a significant other in search of a fail-safe gift for the man in your life, you couldn’t go wrong with one from the collection by ‘All Good Scents’
